Morrison Construction’s North East Scotland, Highland and Central Scotland business units each earned the top accolade, to be presented at RoSPA’s 2011 Award Ceremony on 22 September, at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel.
The Gold Medal is awarded to companies which demonstrate a sustained focus on the safety and well-being of their workforce and have achieved a minimum of five consecutive Gold Awards.
“The safety of our employees is our highest priority,” said Mike Keith, Managing Director of Morrison Construction’s building business in Scotland. “I’m extremely proud of the Morrison Construction team’s continued commitment to maintaining the highest standards of safety.”
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Morrison Construction has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”
RoSPA is a safety charity and launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement
Morrison Construction operates from five regional offices (Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Grangemouth and Edinburgh) and employs more than 650 staff in Scotland.
